The New York Hernld sny: The
Chinese suar-enne seed, distrihuled by
the Putent oflico last Spring, promises to
be n, complete success ut the North. A
package of seed was planted in Hacks co.,
Pa., b'.ilude 40 decrees North, and
has arrived nt maturity. The iimximum
height of the stock vaj ten feet, and the
preduct in praiu much greater than any
cereal under cultivation. The stalk is
perfectly green after the seed hus reached
maturity, ami the snrhnrine principle is
then fully developed. Tho juice which is
most abundant, is very saccharine, quite
as much so n the variety of cane cultiva
ted at the South. Whether the juice
contains ll same amount of chrystnliza
ble sii'ur, villains to be tested. Should
it be found eual to ordinary cane in that
respect, a new era in the agriculture of
the North will be inaugurated, and an im
mense breadth of land be devoted to cul
ture, as soon as the necessary seed can
bo obtained, which will reouire another
year at least. The seed having been
distributed late in the Spring, which was
cold and Iwckward, there is good reason
to believe that much planted did not reach
maturity. Should the plant fail, so far as
tho manufacture of sugar is concerned,
yet its value as a forage crop cannot bo
overestimated at the North. Cattle, hogs
and horses eat the entire stock with avidi
ty, and no doubt would fatten rapidly on
it. The seed, which is small, has a thin
black hull which can be taken oil", leaving
a fine white flour as tho residue. We
have no means at present of estimating
the value of this flour as an article of food;
but no doubt its merits will be fully inves
tigated. The culture required for the
plant is similar to that adopted for indian
corn when planted in rows, and the seed
should be put into the ground alniut the
same time. As it is a quick and strong
growing plant, it should be well manured.
In a foflner number of this paper we
noticed the receipt of a small quantity of
Molasses, manufactured from cane grown
in our vicinity. From experiments made
here, and from the successful issue of the
trial in Bucks County, which we give
above, there is no doubt in our mind, that
the culture of this variety of enne can be
made a profitable business, and the North
em States, will, in the opinion of many,
in a short time le able to supply a portion
of that article to the consumers at home
We wish the gentlemen who have some
of the seed of this variety of cane, would
favor us with a small quantity, as there
has been several apnliiaiious made to us'

For some time past, gas has been man
ufactured from peat, in Paris. In mea
suring the comparative illuminating pow
ers of coal and peat gas, the result has
been found to be in favor of neat, its
power being three hundred und forty-two,
while that of coal is one hundred. The
manufacture of peat gas is also described
as more simple than that of coal. Tho
neat, if put into an iron retort heated to a
low red heat, all'ords immediately a mix
ture of permanent gasses and viqiors
which condense into nn oleaginous liquid,
which two products separate on cooling.
The oil is subiect to a new distillation.

A washing machine, on an unique
plan, has been invented, the clothes being
placed in a slatted cylinder, made like u
squirrel cage, said cylinder having within
it at earn end, an oblique corrugated
loard, und when the cylinder rotates, the
boards cause the clothes to tumble from
one end of the machine to the other, thus
assisting the cleansing. A new printing
press lias licen brought to public notice
It consists in the employment of a rota
ting and reciprocating cylinder, and also
in u peculiar inking device, niul fly, which
catches the sheets as they issue from thi
press. The machine is simple in ill con.
struct ion, can he allonled nt u low cost,
and is not liable to get out of repair.
Artificial Stone.
The new artificial stone made by Mr.
I'a isoiiie, the inventor, is formed by mix
it g tho lluid silicia of soda with sand and
other material, varying according to the
required result, And thus forming a kind
of thick paste, moulded readily into any
shape. Kxposed for a time to the air,
this gradually hardens by evaporation of
pari of the water, and when put into a
kiln, the water is more rapidly and com
pletely given oil', the result being a per
fectly soliM mass, the original jHirticles of
sand lioing now cemented together by a
kind of glass, forined by the silicate of
soda raised to a red heat.

Such an enterprise cannot fail to command
the approval and patronage of the public. It
has a basis as firm and pure as its objects are
beneficial and noble. There is no reason why
it should not become national, in its claims
upon the people. Originated and conducted
by intelligent, reliable parties, the new Asso

successful. Its very liberal inducements com

Old John.
Old John was quite a temperate man
That no one could deny,
lie drank his water tempered with
A trifle of " old rye."
For John believed in warming drinks,
And tonic mixtures mild,
As he was often troubled with
His stomach's getting rye-l'd.
Old John was not a pious man
Hut yet he oft did feel
The spirit's influence o'er his soul
In pensive moments steal.
Old John was not to falsehood prone.
Nor truth nor virtue scoffed,
Yet, though he rarely spoke untruth
I've seen him lie full oft.
Though trrim of feature and austere",
Nor oft by mirth beguiled,
And, though he very seldom laughed,
No man more often smiled.
A " hard case" he was often styled,
Hut, though a rough old fellow,
A hard case he could scarce have been,
lie was so often mellow.
They called him dissolute and loose,
As with much truth they might,
Hut yet 'tis strange they called himooie
When always getting tight
Though flushed Ins face,his nose bloodred
His hair of sanguine hue,
Yet people often would persist,
And say that John was blue.
John had no music in his soul,
It was not in him born ;
Yet though he could not raise a note
He sometimes tried a. horn.
Though bold as youthful David, who
Before Goliath stood
John slew no giants with his sling
Ah! no ! 'twas he got slew'd.
But now he's gone! death called him when
His earthly toil was done,
He smiled his last and then teeiif off
Half -cocked, like some old gun.
Mr. Cajsar, a darkey preacher on a
southern plantation, had made an appoint
ment to preach about twenty miles from
his master's plantation, and there he made
his appearance with his saddle bags 011
his arm, and gave out at once that he had
come to preach the Gospel to the niggers
" Yah ! yah !" responded a hundred
voices ; but one ot the negroes, more bold
but not worse than the rest, sung out:
" Well, now, look a-here, nigger, if you
jis brung a pack o' cards wid you, you
incut dim sumhu, but preach 111 is a little
too slow for dis congregation."
Car-sar remonstrated with them, as they
all seemed to fall in with the old fellow's
ideas; but they told him to go home, and
" de nex time he come to bring de cards."
Cicsar started off with his saddle-bags on
his arm, but halted, opened them, and
turning about as he said, "If dat's what
you must have, why, den, you must !" and
pulling out a greasy old pack, sat down
on the grass.
" Dat's de talk : O de land, jis look!
dat nigger got some little senses left arter
all : scnsibul to de last !" they cried out,
one after another. The preacher com
menced operations, and after some five or
six hours' playing, had skinned every
thing around, cleaning them out of all the
loose silver they had picked un in many a
day; Caesar shoved the documents intothfr
bags, and starting off again, told them, by
way of a parting benediction, that when
ever they had a little mpre money to sup

The following specimen of "Young
Americanism" we think is to good to be
One night Freddy had been put to bed,
and mother and Johnny were in an ad
joining room. Presently Johnny cut up
some caper, on which mother threatened
to take him into the other room and whip
" Mother," said Freddy's voice under
the bed clothes, " I know where I'd take
" Where ?" said the mother, whose
curiosity was excited.
" I'd take him under the left ear !"
Punch is wicked enough to print th
following paragraph under the head of
" Social Statistics." Married gentlemen
will read it and take' warning :
"Thirteen married gentlemen, who,
within the last week or so, have been con
victed of having smoked in their own,
dining room, have been severally fined a
new bonnet, and in default, have been
committed to the hard labor of taking out
their wives for an afternoon's shopping."
The New York "Dutchman" says:
" Machinery has reached a great state of
perfection. We saw some burnt peas put
into the hopper of a coffee mill the other
day, and in less than two minutes it was,
occupying n place in a grocery window,
labelled " Old Government Java."
A Frenchman, pasconading over the
inventive genius of his countrymen, said:
" We invented lace ruffles !"
" Aye," said John Hull, "and we added
shirts to them !"
